Adirondack chairs have been around for over a century. This iconic piece of patio furniture is perfect for lounging around on breezy warm days at the beach, by the pool, or out on the deck or patio. The original version was made from a solid piece of wood cut into 12 pieces. Today Adirondack chairs are available in a wide variety of materials, including plastic as well as many types of wood. You can purchase one of these chairs, as you would any other patio furniture, and relax very comfortably in your decision. Or, you could easily build your own and experience the singular pleasure that comes from creating something with your own hands.
The choice is yours, of course. And if you’re up for building your own Adirondack chair, here’s a video featuring popular DIY blogger Ana White and Home Depot associate Wendy to show you how. This project was one of our free monthly Do-It-Herself Workshops held a Home Depot stores across the country.
